Oppo, unlike, Xiaomi has not provided any details over the next-gen wireless air charging tech, unveiled at MWC 2021. Xiaomi had earlier stated that its remote charging technology is capable of delivering only 5W of power to a single device over a distance of a couple of metres.

Oppo has teased its new wireless charging technology at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2021. The Wireless Air Charging solution powers the battery wirelessly even when the device is in the air, without any cables. Oppo’s new Wireless Air Charging tech was showcased in a video, and the company is likely to improve the solution before commercially rolling it out. Oppo’s domestic rival Xiaomi had also teased a similar wireless-air charging tech back in January. Xiaomi called it the Mi Air Charge technology.

The new Oppo Wireless Air Charging tech was showcased as a part of its new flash charging project: The Flash Initiative. In the video we can see, the OPPO X 2021 rollable OLED screen smartphone on a wooden charging pad. The phone starts charging as soon as the device touches the surfaces. However, the battery continues to power up even when the device is lifted a few inches above the surface. It is likely the radius of the wireless charging solution is limited to a small distance.

Twitter Fleets Gets Twemoji Stickers, Some Android Users Can Now Access Twitter Spaces Audio-Chatroom

Published

Twitter’s version of Snapchat Stories, called Fleets is now getting a new update that brings Twemoji Stickers tray. The latest feature enables users to add emojis or stickers to Fleets for a better visual appeal. Until now, the Fleets feature on the Twitter Android or iOS app only allowed users to add text over photos or videos. Users could still add emojis if the keyboard had in-built emoji options; however, the latest feature gives access to more 3D-enhanced stickers directly. Moreover, Twitter Spaces, a Clubhouse-inspired audio-chat room is reportedly rolling out to select Android customers.

The Twemoji option for Twitter Fleets is now rolling out to users in Japan and will likely reach other markets in the coming months. The Twemoji button sits next to the text button, as per a photo shared by Twitter. Additionally, the Twemoji currently appears to be limited to iOS users while availability details for Android client remain unclear. Though the feature does not seem to be substantial, it is likely that Twitter would soon add more options like AR filters – similar to what Facebook offers with Stories on Instagram. Notably, the micro-blogging company acquired Chroma Labs last year, the team behind Chroma Stories. The app basically allowed users to add a range of colourful frames and filters to their Stories content.

In another Twitter-related news, some Android users are now getting an early preview of Twitter Spaces, a Clubhouse-inspired voice-based conversation room right on the platform. According to Android Police, Android users who have access cannot start Spaces chatroom yet but can join others and react with emojis. The company is expected to roll out the stable version in March, though the availability may vary according to regions. Twitter Spaces has been available to select iOS users since early February. Twitter Product Designer Maya Patterson had previously explained that the Spaces feature is meant to create a safe space for intimate conversations in public. It will essentially allow users to join or start a voice-based chatroom where they can discuss any topic. Admins will have control over who can speak or join.
